Apple "Apple's new iOS 7, which the company unveiled last week at its Worldwide Developer Conference, says a lot about the future of mobile devices because Apple owns the future of mobile devices." If you're an Apple fanatic, you're going to love this article. If you're not an Apple fanatic, you'll be shaking your head in disbelief that the once great AppleInsider runs stuff like this these days. Hey, there's always MacRumors - the last great bastion of proper Apple rumour reporting.

Well, imo, iOS 7 together with Windows Phone 8 are proper operating systems designed for mobile.

When I look at Android I see poor linux OS that was tried to be pulled to mobile. And it failed, again, in my opinion.

That said, I won't be buying iPhone or Lumia, because these OS, albeit having a good design, are way to restricted and I cannot pay that price for a device that is more powerful yet I can do less than with my old Nokia E70, let alone Nokia N900.

When I will do something I hope I will fail like Android.

Well Bieber has a ton of fans too, so I cannot say that he failed as a singer?

Atleast here in Lithuania, the only reason I see cheap Android tablets instead of iPads is, well, because they're cheap. And yes I asked.

No you don't, but I'd bet you hope you will succeed like Samsung. There is a difference between Android the operating system, and devices that run it. Android by itself, if you factor in monetary gain for Google, is fairly dismal. Factor in the gain in device sales for other companies besides Google (companies that market what the users actually want in a device and don't have to develop the os themselves) and you'll see success. Even Google has noticed this.

Spoken like someone who has never used a a recent android phone, or possibly never used ios. If you have used both extensively you would never say such a misguided thing.

Android's most recent iterations, sorry, are far superior to iOS in every way except one: gpu accelerated everything that makes iOS always feel more buttery than Android.

Apart from that it looks nicer (especially with iOS7) has more useful features for mobile, and in general is smarter, more powerful, and *just as usable* as iOS. Not acknowledging this and instead making extreme comments about how bad Android is reveals you as either a raging apple fanboi, raging google hater, or just completely clueless.

Can't speak for Win8 but you are insanely wrong about iOS and Android.

many people who complain about Android have probably only tried the bargain basement 2.x versions with a 600Mhz processor and 192MB of RAM.

There's tablets at work, Android is 4.1, but I'd take iPad any time of the day.

I do not own any tablet because I think that iPad is worth ~100 dollars for such toy, but it's just better than Android.

So, albeit having a good design, a way too restrited mobile OS is so a success that you will NOT buy any device running it because while more powerfull it does less than an way older device?

Is there is *any* logic here!?

I'm just comparing two shits, and iOS > Android.

I can compare anything I like, you know.
